Ziggy gains RYA Helmsman Certificate

8 February 2015

Cub Scout Leader, Ziggy, gained his Royal Yachting Association (RYA) Inland Waterways Helmsman’s Certificate on the “Jubilee Venture” Scout Narrowboat, Sunday 8th February.

This was the culmination of several all-day training sessions on the boat with the excellent training crew and other Scouters interested in gaining their RYA Certificate and Scouting Outdoor Activities (Narrowboat) Permit.

Jubilee Venture is a 14 metre (47 ft) Narrow Boat which is owned and run by Wakefield District Scouts.

It is moored in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, and is available for hire by Uniformed Groups.

It can carry 15 people for day trips, and for overnight use there are 10 berths. It has hot and cold running water, and a four ring cooker with grill and oven.Jubilee Venture Narrow Boat

Ziggy is now just waiting for his Scouting Permit to be signed off then we can arrange some trips on the boat! 🙂
